Regulation implementing the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act
The Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financieren van terrorisme – Wwft) allows the laying down of further rules by ministerial regulation. The Regulation implementing the Wwft (Uitvoeringsregeling Wwft) uses this option.
It discusses exceptions to the customer due diligence requirements and provides for the option of simplified customer due diligence. It also elaborates on the statutory provisions governing customer identity verification, on the Committee on the obligation to disclose unusual transactions (Commissie inzake de meldingsplicht van ongebruikelijke transacties), and on a Wwft compliance exemption. In addition, the Regulation implements a number of technical amendments in various other ministerial and other regulations.
